PRIVATE YOGA SESSIONS
Laura discovered her passion for yoga at 16 years of age. Since then she has studied with many teachers in various forms of yoga: Hatha, Bikram, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Yin, Restorative, Tibetan Yantra and more. After years of personal practice, she now dedicates herself to teach, sharing her passion and experience. She specializes in a holistic approach to yoga, incorporating art, music and healing, tailoring classes to specific needs and goals. Spirituality is at the core of her teaching. Caring for the individual, she nurtures, encourages and empowers.
"Our physical body, its alignment (or misalignment), its biological functioning (or dis-ease) as well as more subtle nuances of its outer appearance and expression, can reveal a great deal about our mental, emotional and spiritual state. As a yoga teacher, I am not only observing bodies, assisting and cueing students to stay safe and lead them towards a deeper practice physically, I am also observing the souls within the bodies. I often feel and sense the habitual tensions and areas of stress and notice how this expresses itself in the body. My intention when teaching is help nourish, balance and restore all aspects of the body not just the physical.
For those experiencing repetitive strain or tension in their practice, private yoga sessions can be particularly helpful to explore and understand, starting from the most fundamental postures, where there may be areas of misalignment. Through deeper self-knowledge and awareness, we can help bring our body, mind, heart and soul back into a more balanced state to allow a safe and healthy movement through the postures. This knowledge and understanding can then be brought back into group classes."
Laura has offers private yoga sessions for clients in the U.S. and internationally.
"I've been fortunate enough to have several yoga practices with Laura Shirreff recently. Her one-on-one personalized sessions were transformative and enjoyable. My primary focus was to reduce stress and she leveraged various breathing practices to help me to accomplish this goal. I have practiced yoga for numerous years with various yoga teachers, Laura by far is the best! You can tell she LOVES sharing the benefits of yoga practice and she is attentive to your individual yoga needs. She is patient and compassionate to her yogis and I can't wait to practice yoga with her again."
